AudioKinesis design goals:
Well-controlled, and well thought-out, radiation patterns over most of the spectrum. This results in a reverberant field with a correct spectral balance, which contributes to natural timbre and long-term fatigue-free listening.
Freedom from dynamic compression. Musicians use dynamic contrast to convey emotion, so a speaker that is free from dynamic compression at normal in-home volume levels will do a better job of conveying that emotion, all else being equal.
Freedom from coloration, including box internal resonances, panel resonances, driver resonances, and audibly significant frequency response aberrations.
SET and OTL friendly impedance curve. Some of the finest sounding amplifiers out there have a fairly high output impedance, so we try to keep the impedance curve above 8 ohms and as smooth as possible.
A reasonable balance between efficiency, bass extension, and box size (which is closely related to WAF).
Good value. We work very hard to put together a very high quality combination of drivers, enclosure, and crossover design. Our focus is on value and performance rather than marketing or a big profit margin.
